It’s making the rounds that the replacement for the Canon EOS 7D (price & specs) is in use by selected photographers at FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil. We reported it first, and others also got this information.
For the sake of good reporting, I have to say that while I got some more bits about the 7D replacement being in use at FIFA 2014, I also got some mails from (supposed) Canon press photographers that were saying it is not true, that no 7D replacement is undergoing final tests in Brazil, that no selected photographers are using it.
Hard to say what to believe and what not. The replacement for the EOS 7D, i.e. Canon’s next APS-C flagship, is expected to be announced for Photokina. It’s now 5 years since the EOS 7D was announced, a long time and a replacement is due.
